tv   The O Reilly Factor  FOX News  October 6, 2014 5:00pm-6:01pm PDT

5:00 pm
they said enough. up next the o'reilly factor, good night from new york city. we will see you tomorrow night. 7:00 p.m. >> the o'reilly factor is on. tonight: >> mother load of bad ideas. [ applause ] >> it's ugly. >> big shootout between two big liberals. mar and affleck over whether islam is destructive to the world. we will tell you what we think. someone could get off the flight and practices witchcraft. >> a level of ignorance which we should not allow in our media. >> a pbs correspondent attacking andrea tantaros and fox news for reporting the truth. we'll take that man to task tonight. >> so you are homeless? and now you are high.
5:01 pm
how does that feel? >> it feels good. it's colorado. >> also ahead, jesse watters on another unintended consequence of legal pot homeless people flooding into denver. >> right now we are getting high. >> caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. ♪ ♪ hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. is islam a destructive force in the world? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. right now the ace sis terrorists are attacking a town in syria very close to the turkish border. civilians are fleeing in panic because these isis savages are known to slaughter innocent people. meantime, turkish tanks and troops do nothing, sitting on their side of the border
5:02 pm
watching the carnage unfold turkey is a muslim country. and all throughout the world, there are about 1.6 billion muslims and 35 countries practice some kind of sharia law. that means they are governed by people who abide by principles of islam that are are controversial to say the least in some places you can be stoned to death for committing a sin. a pew research asked muslims if they favor sharia law, in afghanistan 99% do. pakistan 84%. iraq 91%. egypt 74%. jordan 71%. even in great britain, national opinion poll found that 78% of british muslims believe people who criticize mohammed should be prosecuted by civil authorities. think their religion should dictate what happens in
5:03 pm
society. enter uber liberals bill bill maher and ben affleck. antireligionist. he despises all organized religion. makes no secret of that mr. affleck is a traditional liberal fervent supporter of president obama and many left wing causes. over the weekend mr. mar and author sam harris and mr. affleck debated islam. >> all i'm saying is that liberal principles like freedom of speech, freedom to practice any rouge religion you want without fear of violence. freedom to leave a religion. equality for women. equality for minorities, including homosexuals, these are liberal principles into liberals applaud for but then when you say in the muslim world this is what is lacking, then they get upset. >> well, liberals have really failed on the topic of athletic theocracy. he this will criticized
5:04 pm
credit they can crazy and theocracy. abortion bombing happened in 1984. when you want to talk about the treatment of women and homosexuals and free thinkers and public intellectuals in the muslim world, i would argue that liberals are failed us. >> you have the person who understands the officially codified doctrine of islam? you are the interpreter of that? >> i'm actually well-educated on this topic. >> you i'm asking. you are saying islam aphobia is not a real thing. >> not a real thing when we do it. >> no. >> i'm not denying that it certain people are bigoted against muslims as people. and that's a problem. >> big of you have. >> >> why hostile about this concept. >> it's racist. >> it's so not. your shifty just. >> absolutely not. >> we are saying we have to be able to criticize bad ideas. >> of course we do. >> of course we do. >> islam is the mother load of bad ideas. >> jeesh.
5:05 pm
>> like blasphemy. >> it is. >> >> interesting how affleck invokes the name of jesus. who is correct? as far as condemning all muslims, mr. affleck is on the side of the angels, pardon the pun. talking points most muslims are peaceful people. even if they do believe in sharia law, that's a flaw in their thinking doesn't mean they are violent maniacs. also in the bible there are violent passages in the koran, doesn't mean much. interpretation of scripture is what separates a fair person from a hateful fanatic. however, mr. mar is correct on the overall effect islam is having on the world right now. truth is many muslim nations have not confronted islamic terrorism have not attacked violence in the name of allah, and have not even condemned the jihad. there is exception to the rule but they are few.
quote quote quote
5:06 pm
therefore militant islam continues to drive and plenty of sanctuaries from which to commit their evil. ben affleck should well understand that he himself would be beheaded in a heart beat by these isis animals and that even though they are the most extreme element of the jihad they are not that far away from their fanatical cuches. hours after america was attacked by al qaeda on 9/11. thousands of muslims, regular folks celebrated in the streets. they were happy. more than 3,000 innocent people, including muslims, were murdered. again, these people are a minority but they were not called out in any official way by muslim nations around the world. truth is islamic jihad do coo not exist if not for muslim nations turning away. turkey could crush isis right this minute, but turkey does nothing.
5:07 pm
the afghan people could turn against the taliban, they do not. the pakistani government harbored usama bin laden. the government did. those facts are something that ben affleck and others who agree with him should think about. in any discussion about the overall effect islam is having on the world. talking points well understands that for centuries muslims coexisted peacefully with other religions. now terrorism and the jihadists are again on the move. and most muslim nations are not joining with the west to confront that therefore, criticism of islam's role on the world stage is certainly valid: the muslim world needs to take a hard look at itself. and that's the memo. next on the run down, we have reaction. later, bernie goldberg on a pbs correspondent attacking andrea tantaros over ebola. the factor is coming right back.

prophet, you can't write books, you can't make documentaries, people are beheaded in some of these countries for those kind of acts. i just think it's a terrible scourge on the world at this ats moment. >> it does taint the good muslims. >> correct. >> you may remember when i was on "the view" behar and goldberg walked off when i said muslims attacked us on 9/11. every single one of the terrorists involved in the 9/11 attack was a muslim and all the money behind it came from muslims. and the country had originated n s. a muslim country, afghanistan. but behar and goldberg saw my statement, which was in the context of the discussion why we should not allow a mosque on the site of 9/11 to remind everyone saw it as besmirching as
5:13 pm
affleck saw what mar and the other guy was doing. things haven't changed in all those years. >> that's the knee jerk reaction of all those liberals is to assume that that is what you are saying. each when you explicitly say i am not saying that all muslims believe this or the religion of islam itself is bad. but you cannot, it is willful blindness and silliness to ignore the fact that these radical brand of islam is what inspires and animates some of the most barbaric and ill liberal behavior on the entire planet. liberals are so uncomfortable naming that end up sort of tacitly, at least ignoring some really real horrible behavior. you don't have to look farther than england those who say this gang of gang rapes going on. came from a place of islam phobia. that's a problem. >> very hard question, juan.
5:14 pm
very hard question. >> here it comes. >> in the 1930s in america we had liberal people, okay? and then the war started with germany and the nazis were exposed for who they were. there wasn't anybody in america that i can find and can i just wrote a book on world war ii. that objected to condemning the germans and not all germans were nazis, most were not. but in this country at that time in history we were against the germans because the germans had allowed the nazi party to be the scourge of the earth. what is the difference now than then? >> well, i think one, you remember, they were isolationists people didn't want us to get involved. i would say this, the big difference is today, again, the people who would say this is a religious faith and they would say we are tolerant of other faiths in
5:15 pm
our american tradition, that's essential part of who we are as american people. i am very much so. but i would point out to you, bill, that then you have to be honest, that if you are looking at the nazis or any military right wing who arish dictatorship. look at the way they treat the women. look at the way they treat the gays and look at the way they treat the other faiths and you say as an american liberal this is untenable. we can't have. this why would you not say that about the muslims who are doing the same thing? >> here is the irony of this ben affleck won academy award about that movie about iran. which is the worst theocracy in the world right now. these are people who have sworn to kill every just in the world. when affleck hears, you know, muslims are causing trouble and he reacts, oh, well, look, you just did a movie on it. >> yeah. here's the thing. >> go ahead mary katharine. >> here is the thing, bill,
5:16 pm
when you reference the pew poll and many have in discussing this debate that you have in pew poll in 2013, that surveyed 38,000 muslims around the muslim world. some of the questions dealt with honor killings and some dealt with stoning for adultery it is true only a handful of countries had a majority of people who supported these practices. here is t pew poll had had to have questions about honor killings and stonings for adultery. that is a different mind set and different kind of cultural trend that you are measuring than other places. >> to wrap it up, they their responsibility. >> part of the discussion. >> they bear the responsibility of speaking out in protected situations. we understand in afghanistan why they can't because the taliban are coming machine gun them down. >> affleck kind of proved mar's point by reacting so prickly and childishly and calling them gross and racist. mar was saying can we have the discussion about polling numbers and some of this information. >> i don't want to call affleck childish. i want to talk to him. >> no, no.
5:17 pm
he is fine. >> let me just say as you always position me as the liberal on this panel. let me just say, i just think to not say something to quote edmund burke would give silence evil in this case. >> turkey should be ashamed of itself. >> very good point. >> allowing that to happen when they are just right there to crush these isis savages and they are not doing jack. >> they are afraid, bill. >> afraid of what, juan? >> they have a big army and us behind them. bull. >> trajectory. >> i have got to go. brit hume on leon panetta. tomorrow night i will interview the former director and cia chief. what would you ask him. back to denver where the homeless population son the rise. guess why? those reports after these messages. ♪

5:20 pm
5:21 pm
all right. so i'm looking for a little guidance here on my panetta interview. what points should i cover? >> you don't need any real guidance for me, bill. just on that pointst first point that he just made. might ask him whether he doesn't think that in fact the president thought that once usama bin laden had been killed that it was baseballly mission accomplished as far as defeating al qaeda, what they like to call core al qaeda from that point forward he was inclined to follow his own instincts which was to stay out of
5:22 pm
things in the middle east particularly what happened in libya. you might ask him what effect he thinks of the outcome of the fall of qualify had qaddafi had. can you take it as a given that he urged the arming of the syrian rebels while he was in office. you might ask him how forcefully he made that case. in other words, did he really, you know, really brace the president on that or did he simply recommended it and then when it didn't fly that was the end of it it. it would be good to know that. >> that's a tough one for me because i'm not so sure i would have okayed arming the moderate syrian rebels because of the exact same thing that happened in iraq. i mean, if you have a hodgepodge with no leadership, and you give them heavy weaponry, the isis thugs just take the weapons when they overrun them. and so that is legitimate concern. >> bill, remember, the president's plan going forward now is to do just that. >> i have opposed that plan. >> to arm the syrian rebels. >> bill, the segment is
5:23 pm
about panetta's views, right? >>. no it's all about me. it's always about me. [ laughter ] >> well i will tell you, i can't -- i know,. >> topics that i feel very passionately about, and i'm not going it tell everybody now what they are because i don't want to i see your point -- i don't know how candid he is going to be. i have known leon poor many years. >> doing something. it turns out he can't establish that he vigorously urged that course it seems to me it diminishes the credibility. >> how long have you known leon pa panetta. >> 30 years. i have known him when he was in the house of representatives. he was a republican back in the day. >> that was world war i, wasn't it? when you guys were discussing how wilson -- >> yes. back when i was merely elderly. >> right. now, panetta, and i have done some work with his

president. on the other hand, he has written a book now which he has made basically these assertions, repeated them on television. it's certainly fair to ask him. >> doesn't give you a lot of inside baseball though. he doesn't put you in there in a room. i guess that's my task to try to get it out of him. >> get a little of the detail there one other thing i think you probably have to ask him although i don't believe that he is saying what he is saying about obama and about the advice not taken and so forth any kind of a way to help make it easier on hillary clinton to distance herself from those policies. you might ask him the question anyway. just about the relationship with -- and also ask him if he has heard from the white house since he made these allegations. >> well, biden has been bad mouthing him but, yeah. >> i will get his reaction. >> who he has heard from. it will be interesting to know. >> all right, brit. thanks again. plenty more as the factor moves along this evening. bernie goldberg has two topics tonight why the fbi ♪ calling the oklahoma beheading terrorism and pbs

5:30 pm
chastises for calling that incident in oklahoma work place violence but not terrorism. give us the gist of your thinking. >> the headline, the literal headline on my column on my web site is how stupid do they think we are? and it's a reference to the fbi becoming just the latest american institution that thinks we are all a bunch of morons. as we all know, this muslim convert in oklahoma 30-year-old man chops the head off with a knife of a woman he used it to work with. 54-year-old grandmother: d.a. out there was shouting islamic or arabic phrases and words.
5:31 pm
the fbi says verbatim quote beyond being fired, man was fired after trying to proselytize to get people to convert to islam. fired have another motive. are you kidding? nobody in his right mind believes that this is anything but islamic terrorism. but the fbi and this is the bigger story, bill, the fbi has become politicized. it's part of the justice department, which is run by eric holder. who is a political hatchet man and look out man for his friend barack obama. >> the president. >> you want to know why, let me give to you with reasons why real quick. one is a pc reason. the other is political. pc the president for whatever crazy reason doesn't want to offend or thinks he is going to offend
5:32 pm
moderate muslims. that's why the mass murder at fort hood, texas, is also work place violence. the other is political. he doesn't need and eric holder knows. this he doesn't need a domestic, islamic terrorist incident domestically in the united states on his watch in both cases this is not a good thing with democracy. >> i agree with 90% of what you saying, the fbi has been politicized. i will point out the malaysian airliner investigation went to quantico many many months ago and they certainly know what those pilots were doing up there and they certainly have looked at their computers and everything else and we have not heard a word. not a word. >> right, exactly. >> and they know, that investigation is finished. and it's in some lockbox, all right? the second thing is, and this is where i disagree with you a little. the "new york times" didn't ask the proper question to the fbi guy. it was work place violence in the sense that the guy targeted a person where he
5:33 pm
was working. before he was fired. so, in that narrow range, the fbi guy was telling you the truth. what the question should have been was was this islamic guy, was this muslim copycatting isis? yes or no? >> wait a second, bill. bill, bill. >> that's the fbi guy. >> it's 1963 and a white guy goes to work and there is one black guy there he calls the black guy the "n" word. he says people like you are inferior, he puts his head in a noose, and then he shoots him between the eyeballs and the fbi says it's work place violence. what moron would accept that explanation. this guy took a woman, cut her head off, he cut her head off while shouting arabic phrases. his facebook page had rants
5:34 pm
and picture of 9/11 stuff and usama bin laden. work place violence? >> it was terrorism by a muslim. but in order to get the fbi to say that you have to put them in a corner for all reasons you enumerated. >> they are not going to say it because eric holder doesn't want them to say it and because eric holder buddy and boss barack obama doesn't want them to say it. >> we are going to hold bernie over to talk about a pbs analyst talking about pbs analyst talking about andrea tantaros. mile high city up ahead. itis an. spiriva is a once-daily inhaled... ...copd maintenance treatment... ...that helps open my airways for a full 24 hours. you know, spiriva helps me breathe easier. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace rescue inhalers for

5:38 pm
thanks for staying with us, i'm bill o'reilly. and we continue now with bernie goldberg from miami. yesterday on cnn, fox news host andrea tantaros was verbally attacked by miles o'brien, a pbs correspondent. andrea last week was talking about how ebola is treated in some west african rural areas. >> i sail it before i say it again. in these countries they do not believe in traditional medical care. someone could get off a flight and seek treatment from a witch doctor that practice practices -- this is a bigger fear. we are hoping they come to
5:39 pm
the hospitals in the u.s., they might not. >> andreas is basing her opinion on a doctors without border statement that some doctors in ghana are hostile to western americans some can't even get into those areas. the red cross confirms that on cnn apparently they are not paying attention. >> miles not much to say here but witch doctors? >> well, we could digress into what motivated that and perhaps the racial component of all of this, the arrogance, the first world vs. third world statements and implications of just that. it's offensive on several levels. and it reflects, frankly, a level of ignorance which we should not allow in our media and in our discourse. >> well, let me get this it straight, mr. o'brien, you would not allow andrea tantaros' opinion. we he have asked mr. o'brien to come on the factor. we hope he does. joining us from miami bernie
5:40 pm
goldberg. so this is a cheap shot alley, guy interviewed him notorious cheap shot artist. far left guy cnn hired out of the far left wants to nip issue in fox news any kind he can correspondent. he should know in many areas of west africa aid workers have had a terrible time getting to ebola victims because people in the villages and the towns are superstitious. they don't trust outsiders and what andrea was saying was based on reality or am i wrong? >> no, you are not wrong at all. ignorance is on the part of brian stelter and miles o'brien. here is what they left out on cnn. a british red cross worker, who was working with ebola patients in sierra leone said. this some african-americans believe the disease is a punishment or a result of witchcraft. some families believe that when their loved one goes
5:41 pm
into an ambulance they will be given an injection to kill them. so if some african-americans -- africans believe that ebola is a witchcraft. why would some go to a witch doctor to get straightened out. here is what you are not allowed to say outloud and you will never hear from a liberal journalist at cnn or any other news organization. many africans, i have to whisper this, many africans in sierra leone here it comes are backward people. they do believe in witch doctors. but it's a lot easier, they won't talk about that the liberals, that makes them very uncomfortable. a lot easier to go after someone on fox for using the term witch doctor. >> he would all racist here we know that and we are all denigrating the third world. >> imply unfairly that she is a racist. let me just say this very briefly. shame on brian stelter and
5:42 pm
miles o'brien. they have no idea how their liberalism effects and infects their journalism. shame on them. >> you saw mr. o'brien say it should not be permitted therefore andrea tantaros. >> now, in miami, where you live right now, there is a neighborhood called little haiti. and there are thousands and thousands of home invasions who have come over to the united states to seek a better life. very small number of those home invasions practice voodoo. all right? >> exactly. >> they do. bernie and i know it i have done a story in haiti on voodoo. it is there. there are hongans which are witch doctors, there they are there. they charge for their services. in africa the same thing it may not be called voodoo it is called something else. andrea saying it is possible that some infected patient with ebola can get on a plane, go to miami, go to
5:43 pm
dallas, texas, where there it are the communities though have these people in the united states and go there instead of going into the hospital. it is an absolutely possible and in context. >> let me make something very very clear. andrea tantaros said nothing, nothing wrong. this is how crazy liberal -- liberal nism general, if they want to be crazy, that's fine with me. when liberalism infects journalism, that really bothers me. it's that she used the term witch doctor and these two people who didn't know -- how do i know what the red cross worker said about how they believe in witchcraft and you know it, but these two geniuses at cnn didn't know it? it's a liberal, political correctness. you say witch doctor and they woo, you can't say that you are a racist. or imply that you are a racist. i have done stories in haiti, also. if i came back and said, you know it, are a lot of people there who believe in voodoo and go to witch doctors, does that make me a racist?
5:44 pm
liberalism is wrecking journalism and, you know what? we're holding them accountable but nobody else is. newspapers don't hold. television media critics don't hold them available. >> the fact that we do and this segment will be on every political web site in the country in about 45 seconds is do what we can do bernie and that's all we can do. >> right. >> nice to have you. watters on deck. homeless pouring into the mile high city of denver, colorado. why? watters will tell us, next. >>
